Networking Coach describes LinkedIn as a FAIL
LinkedIn allows users to connect to people you already know, but fails to connect you to people you want or need to meet and know in cities nationally and internationally.
Sydney’s Leading Networking Coach, describes LinkedIn position as a complete failure and counter objective position to what Business people need and want from LinkedIn. In fact, LinkedIn discourages you to connect with people in business outside of your circle that can empower your business.
If I wanted to stay connected to people I use Facebook, if I want to know what’s happening right now I scope out twitter. Instead of improving its B2B community ability to connect and create business opportunities, LinkedIn has rather decided it wants to become a powerful news platform and keep focusing on empowering recruiters to poach.
To fill the void, two well established Sydney entrepreneurs have created www.8Contacts.com to allow its members to be connected to 8 or more ideal contacts in specific industries through a well connected Professional Networkers in cities around the world. Using its sophisticated search filters, it recommends suitable networkers who are willing to personally connect you with people who can empower your business.
Far from selling out your contacts, many networkers have embraced the opportunity as a way to further growth and give back to their connections. Networkers believe the platform allows them to connect two people or businesses that both need each other for a common good.
Sean, one co-founder, see’s this platform as a seriously missed opportunity by LinkedIn to enhance its users ability to create more business.
